Jesus is transfigured in glory

On the mountain Jesus is transfigured in the presence of his apostles. His message to them “Do not be afraid”, reminds us that God calls us to bear the hardships of this life in the knowledge that Christ is everything. He calls us to be prepared to leave behind all things in order to proclaim his Gospel.

Christ the light of the nations

The Holy Spirit rested on Jesus Christ when he was baptised by John the
Baptist. Through the coming of the Spirit, John recognised Christ as the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world. Through the gift of the Spirit, we too are called to take our place among the saints and become the light of the world, proclaiming salvation to the ends of the earth.
